What to Expect:Flywheel is a favorite among cycling studio enthusiasts who are motivated by numbers and like knowing exactly how hard they’re working.
As a guide, instructors give riders a range of torq (resistance) and RPM (speed) to stick with for each song. Depending on what numbers you hit (which you can see on a small screen at the top of the bike), you’re given a score at the end of class.
Because your body gets used to a workout if you do it over and over again, it’s important to switch things up. Flywheel makes this easy by offering Flybarre classes as well.
The full-body, high-energy workout integrates light weight training with a focus on core strengthening.
The cost of both classes includes cycling shoes (for spin classes), water, towels and fresh fruit so those muscles don’t freeze up on you.
